Our Curriculum

FCA uses the most current, results-oriented textbooks and technological resources to develop academic excellence. This includes the accredited plan of study provided by A Beka Books in addition to other carefully selected materials to maintain the highest level of spiritual and academic standards from Preschool through Grade 5.

 

The A Beka curriculum was selected for use at FCA because of their strict adherence to strong academic and Christian principles. These instructional materials reject humanistic philosophy and methods and build upon the foundation of Scriptural truth throughout all subjects. In addition, other educational resources add depth to our total program.

 

FCA’s program is aggressive. Standards are high and so are expectations of students. With the joint cooperation of parents and the FCA teaching staff, students’ needs are addressed with specific planning and attention.

 

Students’ expectations and responsibilities are fully defined: quality of work, conduct, homework assignments and due dates are all a part of our curriculum.

 

Faith Christian Academy’s academic standards and student environment are in a continual state of evaluation as new teaching resources, techniques, and technologies are advanced. The educational benefits of the advanced technologies are great, with safeguards established. FCA students’ use of these prolific tools will enhance their experience in our technologically-driven society.

 

How FCA Works

FCA combines the flexibility of a virtual school with the resources of a traditional school. Students will receive a quality education using a blended synchronous (live classes) and asynchronous (independent learning) model.

The following core courses will be provided:

Science
Social Studies

Bible
Math
Language Arts

*Students will also be provided with a live Spanish class twice per week.

Students will have access to our asynchronous curriculum 24 hours per day for viewing. Scheduled, live classes will also be provided for instruction and enrichment.  Our caring teachers will also be available during their office hours to support your child’s progress and to answer any questions from their parents/guardians.

FCA believes in the development of the whole child.  Every week we will have an online Chapel service where we will build our spirits and renew our minds through praise & worship, a Bible study and engaging activities. 
 

 

Extracurricular Activities

As God’s creations, we were designed by Him for fellowship with Him and others.
